The money due to Weber in the first year is roughly the team's net from gate receipts. The money due to Weber and Rinne over the next 50 weeks is nearly the gross of gate receipts if the team averages 16.8k sold per game at $50 each. Playoff games bring in roughly $1million gross per early round game.

This is a financial decision only at this point. If the team can keep Weber within this structure, they'll do it. If the structure is either too costly up front or if the risk isn't deemed within acceptable levels, the only choice is to let him go.
